Scheduled for the second weekend in November (Nov 14-15, 2015), Telfair Art Fair is the return of a beloved, outdoor art event that has become Savannah tradition!
The selection of pieces at the Telfair Art Fair tends to cover just about every kind of art you can think of, from traditional painting and sculpting to metal fabrication, fired-clay, glass works, fiber art and textiles, photography, film, mixed media, and found-object art. Similarly, Telfair Art Fair 2015 has a tradition of including a variety of voices and styles from across the art-movement spectrum.
This broad selection of fine art in a wide variety of styles and mediums, from 80+ different artists, at a prestigious, juried art show explains much of Telfair Art Fair’s popularity – but not all of it.
The other reason Telfair Art Fair is such a magnet for art lovers is that much of the art is available for purchase! Take home an original piece – for yourself or a loved one – and aid Telfair Museums’ educational programs as well as adding a one-of-a-kind heirloom to your family’s assets!
Artists participating in the Telfair Art Fair are further motivated to show their best work because everything on display is competing for some of the $11,000 worth of cash prizes to be awarded during the show, including the $5,000 Carolyn Luck McElveen Best of Show Award.
One of the more open secrets about Telfair Art Fair is the exclusive preview party held on the Friday evening before Saturday’s opening. Known as the Arty Party, this popular, opening evening event gives a jump-start to the weekend for 600 lucky attendees who get to mingle with the artists and have an opportunity to purchase art before the show actually begins! Arty Party tickets go fast and can be purchased online. Be sure to grab yours now before they disappear!
